Think I made a DA polishing boo boo? ;(

Hi Experts

Car was first washed and clayed the panels I polished.

So this was the first weekend I started using my DA polisher ( torq 10fx ). I started with a test patch which was fine. Long story short I was using v36 and orange hex pads, v38 white hex pads and jet seal 109 with red pads.

I was using 5"5 pads , setting 1 to spread and then in a grid on the highest speed slowly. With 50% over lap etc.

Please see attached pictures. Didn't notice this in daylight at the time but under an led at night I did. Is this haze? I noticed light stratches on this. It's right by the edges. Should I of used smaller pads? I.e. 4"?

Is this compound not properly broken down ?

Is this fixable? Poor Audi

Sorry if these are all stupid questions. Totally new to this.


Thanks
Justin

Its just heavy marring. It could be from a bunch of different things. But in short, try refining the finish and use brand new plush microfibres to remove it. And use a panel wipe to check your work.

Its not a "mistake" so to speak, the finish just isn't very good due to needing refining

Thanks for his Matt.

Will this be particularly hard to remove now?

I have bought some panel wipe spray to help with residue removal.

Thanks
Justin

no it just needs refining, exactly what someone else doing cutting would need to do. Soft pad and quality finishing polish, job done

Hi sorry just a quick one. Would you recommend using panel wipe after every panel? So after v34 and v38 and before applying sealant

Or IPA the only way of removing any residue from the compound to see what the real state of the pain is and does it require further correction ,always remove oils and residue before applying any lsp to get the ultimate bond and longevity from the product applied.

A better way is to use a product range that doesn't take as long to break down . But when it does break down it refines itself. Then go back and flrefine further until YOU'RE happy with the finish. Did what I think or what Matt thinks it's how happy YOU are with the finish YOU achieve.
